AIDS (Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is a syndrome caused by Human immune deficiency virus (HIV). The disease alters the immune system making the patient much vulnerable to infections and diseases. This susceptibility worsens if the syndrome progresses. HIV is a virus that attacks immune cells called CD-cells. A 34-year-old male with the complaints of hair fall, frequent cold, cough visited Siddha Clinical Research Unit, Outpatient department, Bengaluru on July 2017. History revealed that he was suffering from HIV since 2014, and he was under ART since then. He was subjected to CD4 count diagnosis once in 6 months after the initiation of ART, result showed no remarkable increase in CD4 count cells. The patient was treated with Siddha medicines - Nilavembu kudineer, Thiriphala chooranam, Aya bringarajakarpam, and Nellika ilehyam. There was a notable increase in CD4 count after 6-month treatment with Siddha medicines. This case study demonstrates that HIV as well as opportunistic infections can be well managed with Siddha medicines.
